Key start won't turn off engine - 926500 1332 Pro

So the key start suddenly won't kill the engine. Thoughts on what could be causing it? Also if it's not a simple fix, is there another way to kill the engine besides chocking it out?

I'm sure the wire plug broke or came off … look under where the key is, if it is not there, then follow the wire back to the engine and check there. All it does is ground out the coil.

Reconnect wire that came loose or replace key switch

On my ariens 11/28 there is a white wire coming from the coil, plugs into the throttle assembly.
If that wire is un attached, my key does not turn my unit off.
It’s on left side , back of motor coming from under the recoil starter.

The off posisition is usually a ground to short the ignition, the wire to the switch might be broken somewhere or the key switch might be bad, try a jumper wire at the switch to a ground anywhere on the frame, bare metal or a bolt head. Good luck.

everything everybody else said. choke it out or turn off gas and let it stall out after a couple minutes until you figure wiring. usually ( dont want to jinx it ) this problem is an easy fix. the ground wire broke or has too much corrosion at connection.

but it could be the switch.

I jiggled the wires after turning off the key and the motor stopped. Obviously a loose connection. Thanks for the help!

If a little jiggling “fixed it” then a little vibration will probably cause the problem again. Better check closer for a more permanent fix. A wire or connector is loose or corroded.
